My first Oktoberfest of the season. Poured from a 11.2 oz. freshness dated bottle: bright and clear, deep golden with a foamy sustained head.
Upon opening the bottle, the aroma was strikingly familiar to a classic German pilsner. After a few moments in the glass, a sweeter malt aroma was evident. Even the more complex, malt accented Oktoberfest lagers have a restrained aroma.
This is an appropriate fest bier for a warm mid September day. This flavorful lager begins with a solid malt profile with nice European hops slightly evident in the background. The lager is immensely refreshing and quaffable from start to finish with faint yeasty notes in the aftertaste. It is certainly not complex and the mouth feel is rather short-lived but isn't the Oktoberfest for quaffing and celebrating? With this lager, you could easily drink several; beware of the well-hidden 5.9 % ABV.
An interesting fact about this beer: it apparently is available only in the American market. When I clicked on the Warsteiner website for Germany, there was no mention of this beer; however, the American version of the website advertises it.
Well worth trying.

I had this on tap at Bierstube in Anaheim. It is a good, very enjoyable oktoberfest.
It looksgood,a nice light brownish copper with a creamyoff-white head, some lace.
Aroma is a nice, simple but full-bodied oktoberfest with lightly caramelized barley and bread crust, light herb.
Taste is a very good,solid oktoberfest with the same basic elements as the aroma, nicely balanced, light sweetness, light zesty bitterness. It's great alone or with German food. Feel is nice, not watery, slightly lively. It's a great easy-drinking but tasty beer.
